    I like turtles.
    Anscari's thread about an all-tube pedal board got me thinking. How awesome would it be to have a pedal board that ONLY had expression pedals on it? I don't want stuff that can be controlled by pedals, like the Moogs, rather stuff like this:

    Anyone got anything else? Really, it needs an OD/Dist.

  4. Oh God, I've made someone think :D

    There's a Fuzz in a exp. pedal but I don't remember neither the brand nor the model.

    And, BTW, that would be a bada$$-looking pedalboard!

    I have just though of a problem. Turning them on and off would be a nightmare.

    You would have to have a true bypass strip. :rollno:
     
  6. Death by audio would happily put a OD/Distortion etc into a wah pedal controlling whatever you want.
     
  7. Akai used to make an OD/Distortion with an expression pedal. Or the Digitech expression factory, which has distortion models but uses the expression pedal for other effects...

    Rather than a true bypass looper, you could use an EB stereo pan/volume to pan between effects and non-effects paths :eek: Guess you'd need a mixer at the other end though. Never seen a mixer with an expression pedal!

    Two options come to mind for a chorus:

    1) The George Dennis GD90 Stereo Chorus-Flanger-Volume Pedal

    2) An Analog Man Chorus built into a Wah.

    From the Analog Man website:

    There is a flanger on the DBA site. And also ring mods, and white noise generators. :hyper: :hyper: :hyper:

    This would be cool if someone made it. I'm not going to though. Too much money...
     
  10. They will make it for you...

    A lot of money but looks worth it!
     
  11. Aha!

    The FoXX Fuzz Wah Volume!

    Boss made a distortion in the 80's, the PD-1 or something like that.

    Two contenders for the spot of OD/Dist then:

    1) Boss PD-1

    2) Foxx Fuzz Wah

    Although on closer inspection, it appears that this MAY be a wah with built in fuzz

    The PD-1 might be a winner!

    Did everyone forget the Digitech Space Station?

    They also made some kind of Reverb Pedal in the XP series and a Modulation i believe.

    I'm looking into making a delay with expression control of the delay time.

    I'm sure some of you guys have messed with the delay time on a delay before, it makes some cool noises. I also think some of you have thought of this idea before.

    it would be uber cool

    Oh god...I dont know what it is about that MXR phaser. It could be that its huge and orange...or just that it could be awesome to play with but GAS is rising in a bad way.
